Hello friends, just wanted to let you all know that I will back up after transferring over to Wordpress with a lil' help from my friends. I should be ready to go on Monday...in the meantime, here's a little food for thought...
Paul Harvey says:
I don't believe in Santa Claus, but I'm not going to sue somebody for singing a Ho-Ho-Ho song in December. I don't agree with Darwin , but I didn't go out and hire a lawyer when my high school teacher taught his Theory of Evolution.
Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not be endangered because someone says a 30-second prayer before a football game.
So what's the big deal? It's not like somebody is up there reading the entire book of Acts. They're just talking to a God they believe in and asking him to grant safety to the players on the field and the fans going home from the game.
But it's a Christian prayer, some will argue.
Yes, and this is the United States of America , a country founded on Christian principles. According to our very own phone book, Christian churches outnumber all others better than 200-to-1. So what would you expect -- somebody chanting Hare Krishna?
If I went to a football game in Jerusalem , I would expect to hear a Jewish prayer.
If I went to a soccer game in Baghdad , I would expect to hear a Muslim prayer.
If I went to a ping pong match in China , I would expect to hear someone pray to Buddha.
And I wouldn't be offended.
It wouldn't bother me one bit.
When in Rome ..
But what about the atheists? Is another argument.
What about them?
Nobody is asking them to be baptized. We're not going to pass the collection plate. Just humor us for 30 seconds. If that's asking too much, bring a Walkman or a pair of ear plugs. Go to the bathroom. Visit the concession stand. Call your lawyer!
Unfortunately, one or two will make that call. One or two will tell thousands what they can and cannot do. I don't think a short prayer at a football game is going to shake the world's foundations.
Christians are just sick and tired of turning the other cheek while our courts strip us of all our rights. Our parents and grandparents taught us to pray before eating; to pray before we go to sleep.
Our Bible tells us to pray without ceasing. Now a handful of people and their lawyers are telling us to cease praying.
God, help us.
And if that last sentence offends you, well . just sue me.
The silent majority has been silent too long. It's time we let that one or two who scream loud enough to be heard that the vast majority don't care what they want. It is time the majority rules! It's time we tell them, you don't have to pray; you don't have to say the pledge of allegiance; you don't have to believe in God or attend services that honor Him. That is your right, and we will honor your right .. But by golly, you are no longer going to take our rights away. We are fighting back
and we WILL WIN!
God bless us one and all ... especially those who denounce Him , God bless America, despite all her faults. She is still the greatest nation of all.
God bless our service men who are fighting to protect our right to pray and worship God.
2007 will be the year the silent majority is heard and we put God back as the foundation of our families and institutions... and our Military come home from all the wars.
Just a thought...see ya Monday ;)

I pray for each of you as well who may not have had the best relationship, or are carrying a burden today. Lay it at His feet, only then will you be able to take His outstretched hands, step on , and dance. Thank you Abba.

AHHHHH…..Happy Monday! My hubby loves to restore antique tractors…..it’s one of those things that if he gets the chance, he’ll spend the whole day outside…..til it runs. He says he never worries about what they look like, only that they run by the end of the day. We spent this weekend at the Harvest Fair locally, and it was just an old fashioned kick in the pants. There were crafts, food, tractor pulls, everything simple and old time.
I started to think of how the simplicity of the weekend made me relax. We were so busy, going from booth to booth, and an old fashioned church service outside in the arena. But something about going back in time a bit, and just enjoying the old things, made us relax. It was a memory worth repeating and looking forward to next year. Of course a lot of my thinking was about God, and how He takes us and doesn’t worry so much about the cosmetics of the outside as He does getting us to run right on the inside. You can put coat, after coat of paint on something, yet if it doesn’t run or realize it’s strength, it’s just still a piece of pretty junk. Getting the inside in line with Gods Word, will make the outside shine, regardless of how we feel.
There are over 55 verses about restoration……my favorite has to be
Hosea: 6:2 In just a short time, He will restore us so we can live in his presence. (NLT)
What a wonderful day that will be!
